Around 50 members, families and friends attended our annual club end of season get together and enjoyed some social tennis, drinks and an amazing lunch of Asian-inspired fare.
During the proceedings, our club president awarded NPTC's life membership to Gary Bell for his outstanding work as Honorary Treasurer over 14 years. In thanking Gary, Colman highlighted Gary's commitment as a volunteer to ensure the smooth running of the Club's operations for such a length of time. This is our second life membership awarded, the first was to Iggy Cannizzo.
The recent successes of the adult teams were also noted in his speech. Of the five teams who made the Spring 16 grand finals, four were successful in winning their competitions. This builds on the Autumn 16 success where four NPTC teams won their grand finals. Special mention was made of Melissa Ng who has completed her own grand slam - winning four premierships in one year.
Colman also congratulated the committee on a big year of activity for their efforts in: adopting the latest technologies for our new lighting system, the online initiative to open up the courts to the public, the smooth running of our club championships and the final celebrations for our juniors.
A big thank you to Kath for her awesome catering and to the rest of the committee for their assistance in organising the day but also for all their hard work over the past 12 months. And to our members and friends, a big thank you for your ongoing support to the club.
